About Your Train to Machu Picchu

Tickets for Machu Picchu will be provided locally. On the day of your visit to Machu Picchu, you will depart by motor coach to the Ollantaytambo train station. Your Tour Manager will check that you are carrying your passport which is required to board all Machu Picchu trains. Prior to arrival at the station, you will receive your round trip tickets including seat assignments from your Tour Manager. Seat assignments are done randomly by Inca Rail & Peru Rail and therefore we cannot guarantee that passengers on the same reservation will be seated together but we'll do our best to accommodate. Names and numbers on the tickets must match your passport. You will present your ticket to the conductor prior to boarding the train for Aguas Calientes. You should hold on to your ticket as it will be required for the return journey. Due to very limited storage space, only one small backpack / daypack / handbag per passenger is permitted on board trains to Machu Picchu. This applies for overnight stays as well. Additional luggage will be transported to and held at your hotel for no additional charge. Passengers who wish to bring extra luggage on the train will be charged an additional fee payed directly to the train operator; this extra luggage will follow in a separate train.
